Growing up here in Denver, if you know anything about the commercial real estate industry, you know the name Frederick Ross. I sure did, because my father has worked for them for the last three decades. Frederick Ross Company is the oldest full-service commercial real estate firm in Denver, Colorado and a partner of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) since 2010. The company has gone through a lot of changes, but none bigger than the one that was finalized at the end of 2012: the acquisition of the Frederick Ross Company by Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. NGKF is a part of BGC Partners, Inc. (NASDAQ: BGCP), a leading global brokerage company primarily servicing the wholesale financial and real estate markets. Together with its affiliates and London-based partner Knight Frank, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank employs more than 11,000 professionals, operating from more than 300 offices in established and emerging property markets on five continents according to newmarkkf.com.
But what does this acquisition mean for the Denver Commercial Real Estate Market? There is no short and easy answer here, but let us take a very brief look.
I like to call them the big six: CBRE, Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield, Cassidy Turley, Jones Lang LaSalle, and Newmark Knight Frank Frederick Ross (Grubb & Ellis, another story in and of itself, is now park of #6). Of course there are other big players in the Denver market: Legend, Transwestern, Unique, Pinnacle, CRESA, and Studley just to name a few. But these “big six” brokered over 51 million square feet in 2011 (office, industrial, and retail) in the Denver area according to the Denver Business Journal’s Book of Lists and most likely even more in 2012 as the market continues to show signs of recovery.
Frederick Ross has a rich and storied history. Founded in 1888 by Frederick Ross, the company has grown and prospered with the city during the 20th century. Jack Box, one of the region's most respected leaders and visionaries in commercial real estate, has served as president and chief executive officer of Frederick Ross Company for 24 years and will assume the title of chairman for this NGKF region.
The size and scope of these “big six” allow them to do what the smaller firms can’t: provide international service capabilities, unique access to capital market resources, and global reach. But with size also comes some disadvantages. Hence, Newmark’s acquisition to tap into the local expertise of Frederick Ross and the trusting relationships that have been created by people such as Jack Box and my father.
From personal experience and a perspective from afar, I have seen how the Denver Commercial Real Estate market has changed. And as a new entrant into the Denver commercial brokerage work force, I can see only positive signs for the growth of Denver and the health of the commercial real estate market in my lifetime. It is exciting to see these “big six” firms taking notice of our “small” market and the positive signs of growth.
As a new chapter begins in the long history of the Frederick Ross Company, I contemplate where the “big six” are going. Will we see only the “big two” in my lifetime? Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Jones Lang La Salle (NGKFJLL) and CBRE Cassidy Turley (CBRECT)? What does this mean for the small and mid-size firms like my own? Where do we fit in this new competitive landscape? I see our company and our leaders as a modern-day Frederick Ross, understanding the importance of community involvement, quality customer experience, and responsible professionalism in developing and serving the community in which we are a part.
On a personal note, I am sad to see the Frederick Ross name go. I remember going into the office with my father in the 1990s when Ross was in the Equitable Building. I remember my internships at Ross and Westfield Development as a college student when they were in the Johns Mansville Building. And I also remember the transition to the new, beautiful 1800 Larimer building in which they now occupy. This building evolution is in a way symbolic of the company’s growth and success. But I will always treasure my Ross coffee mug that my father received from Ross for his continued support, service, and professionalism.
